    When you call a script, the way that you call it gives the script
    a context in which to execute.  A script's context is
    important. For example, when you call a script you usually want to
    single out some object that is central to the script's task.  You
    would call the script in the context of the object on which you
    want it to carry out its task.  It is simpler to just say that you
    are calling the script *on* the object.

       One or two examples would be helpful to understand in which "context" you use the terms 'script´s task',
       'context' and 'object'...

       It's obviously - read 'Python Manual' carefully for a help.
